Let me start by saying this school has a very unprofessional setting. The receptionist is rude and has her picks of parents who she can be pleasant towards but the rest will just suffer her attitude. The biggest problem is the principal. My son is diagnosed with ADHD and I don't think the principal wants to deal with that. I felt pressured into putting my son on medications even though I was trying to go through with alternatives such as therapy and IEPs. My son was bullied on his first weeks of school there and would come home crying. When I'd make a complaint, they claimed that my son was lying and even asked me "Do you believe everything your son tells you?" And today my son came home suspended and told me the principal said that next time he will tell the student who kicked MY SON to kick him again. I think they thrive on the fact that I am a single parent with no man in the household and use that to their advantage...i am desperate to get my son out of this school. I am so tired of it! The only good thing I can say is his teacher he got this year did really great working with him.
